Papaver nudicaule ‘Excelsior’
A tried and true garden strain with all the colours, white, pink, lemon, red, yellow each as beautiful as the next. Easily grown in any sunny garden bed. Broadcast seeds in situ during late autumn and winter for flowering from late winter until early summer. Iceland poppies are both showy in the garden and great in a vase. Poppies are generally best sown direct but we find that starting Iceland Poppies in autumn in trays is the best way.
